    Rear washer jet

    My rear washer is really struggling to give me any water but the fronts and lights are fine which is confusing. I've checked for blockages so the questions I am asking are; are there two pumps and is that the likely problem?

    check your bootlid for a water. Pipe can easily become disconnected, altenatively the central metal shaft could have broken... if its the latter VAG parts do a replacement kit for about £20.

    have a look around front ineer wheel arch to see if water comes down from there when you use the rear wash, mine came uncliped from here all fine now with new clip fitted.
